This program is a must‐attend for any hospital that accepts Medicare or Medicaid since they must be in compliance with the Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement (QAPI) section of the CMS worksheet. This program will also cover the revised QAPI standards, including the high number of patient safety deficiencies.

The CMS QAPI worksheet is an excellent communication tool, so a hospital will know what to expect from CMS. The worksheet is used by State and Federal surveyors on all survey activity in hospitals when assessing compliance with the QAPI standards. QAPI is an important issue to CMS and an increased area of focus in 2017. This program will also highlight the patient safety deficiencies that hospitals have received in this area, as well.
